1st Day of School "Cooking" Project
Old 07-28-2009, 06:03 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #1

Hey everyone! I was trying to find an EASY cooking project for the 1st day of school (or for the 1st week of school).

I need something that will obviously not require "real cooking" and is easy for the kids and I to do together (I teach 1st grade by the way).

I would love to tie this project into a book, if possbile.

Thanks in advance for any ideas!

You are a better woman!! I couldn't imagine cooking with first graders during the first week. I do a project with handprints for the kissing hand on the 1st day and that just about puts me over the edge.

Good luck!!!

If you don't mind me asking, what is your Kissing Hand Project? We read that book as well.

You are very brave. Do you have access to an oven? If you do you can read If You Give A Mouse A Cookie and make mouse cookies. Just take cookie dough and let the kids make three circles to form a mouse. Good luck with that.

I really like the "First-Day Jitter Fritters". I always read that book, but I've not done that activity before. I just may have to try it this year

Pudding in a can
Old 07-29-2009, 01:34 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #11

Get a big coffee can. Add instant pudding and milk. Tape around the lid. Have your children sit in a circle. They take turns saying their name, calling out someone else's name and rolling the can to them. By the time everyone has had a turn or 2, you have pudding in a can.! Be sure to have cups, 1 large spoon for dipping & small plastic spoons. I have done this for several years. The kids love it & it's a great get to know you game. Super easy!

Yes they eat the raisin bran. However, in the friendship salad, I use whipped cream instead of yogurt. I don't like yogurt. Go figure. When I read the post about pudding brought back my college days when I was interning at headstart. We used water, powdered milk and pudding mix. It was magic for the kids and they loved it.

I teach first grade too and the salad sounds like a great idea! Not too pricey either.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom- spread celery with peanut butter (if no allergies) and add Whoppers for coconuts. You can also taste fresh coconut vs. shredded and have them graph their favorites.

Read a story that involves apples. Then, have an apple tasting party and graph the results. You can use red, green, and yellow apples or you could do dried apples, applesauce, and fresh apple.

use apple slices, PB, and mini marshmallows. Don't have a specific book to go with it, but it's pretty generic.

Also, to add onto the Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom one above- the students can add Aplhabets cereal to the celery with a dab of PB

Kissing Hand Cookie
Old 07-29-2009, 07:19 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #18

Our first read-aloud is the Kissing Hand. After lunch we make our very own kissing hand sugar cookies. I give each kid a lump of premade dough to pat flat with a "freshly washed hand". Using a hand shaped cookie-cutter, each student stamps out a hand print. Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper and write each child's name beside their cookie. Then I, along with two little helpers take them to the cafe` to bake while my assistant plays group games or sings songs with the others. Once the cookies are done each student get a cookie and places a Hershey's Kiss in the center. Keeps them coming back!

cooking project

here is a link to a book i use all the time with my first grade class. the title is 'book cooks' and the recipes are easy and do not require any cooking or heat source. unfortunately, my book is at school so i don't even have a table of contents to share.

the recipes relate to various children's literature and my class always loves them! i send home notes at the beginning of the year asking for families to volunteer to donate the ingredients for a book cook session.

http://www.amazon.com/Cooks-Grades-P.../dp/1574717928

hope this is helpful.

Last year we made the tree from a wafer cookie stem, 4 green apple slices(leaves), red grapes (coconuts), and alphabet cereal. We had a time when we couldn't find the cereal and I found alphabet pretzels from Meijer's.

fruit salad

The olnly recipes that I did in the classroom where milkshakes and muffins. I didn't make the muffins I bought them and I had the kids decored them with cream and toppings. That was our NO-birthdays day.

And now I am going to try the fruit salad!
